MAIN LIST

 

Going Local in an Age of Globalization


While the past few decades have focused on global integration, a growing number of innovative entrepreneurs are shaping a new economic model, which directs capital to local communities. The payoffs are huge—regional resilience, local investment options, and decreased use of fossil fuels among them. The obstacles are huge as well. But so is the passion for change.   

Featured speakers: 
• Dan Rosen, founder and CEO of Solar Mosaic, based in Oakland
• Michael Shuman, a leading expert on community economics and author of such books as Local Dollars, Local Sense and Going Local
• Andrew Swallow, founder of Mixt Greens, a restaurant group in San Francisco, and author of Mixt Salads
